First Lady, First Baby.First Rumors.

Although the unfounded rumors started in August, the blogosphere briefly was abuzz over the weekend with recirculating news that Capricorn First Lady Michelle Obama, is pregnant. In fact the rumors have turned into wagers. The Irish bookmaker Paddy Power has slashed the odds from 10-1 to 2-1 for the First Lady giving birth this year reports CBS on its Political News Hot Sheet Friday.
Michelle Obama was born with a a Moon in Aquarius or a Moon in Pisces depending on what time she was born (as yet unknown). She turned 45 just this month (January 17). Here are solar chart wheels for the First Lady: one showing a Moon in Aquarius and one with a Moon in Pisces conjunct her Venus. Most astrology sites use the Moon in Pisces chart shown below.

So what about the swirling rumors, particularly when the rumor started with a complete disclaimer ("This is completely unconfirmed") Strollerderby the "Mother of All Parenting Blogs" sums it all up in a as always clever post by Sunny Chanel:

If by some odd chance it’s true, the timing wouldn’t be the best. Those Obamas, they have a whole lot going on; new jobs, new home, new schools…running a country. Me thinks a new baby would be a wee bit stressful right about now. Plus a new puppy is on the way! You never want to get a puppy and a baby at the same time. But if it is true, this baby would be the first in over 100 years to be born in the White House, the last being Grover Cleaveland's daughter in 1893.

The First Daughters as First Babysitters? Cancer Sun sign child Malia (10) and Gemini Sasha (7) are built in babysitters...but they were promised a puppy. Oh my goodness, if there were to be a First Baby the nation would move on from first trying to help choose a dog, to then moving on to naming the dog after the Obamas choose the dog and from there...naming a baby, which if it was a boy may be called Lincoln.'s catching, those baby rumors and interest in the ultimate celebrity baby, First Baby Boy, First Baby Girl...its a rumor, so it could be twins! Luckily a grandmother is living at the White House etc etc

Perhaps a more Capricorn ( productive) use of the nation's time is to check out Michelle Obama, in her own words: Get a copy of The First Lady's Book: Michelle Obama: In Her Own Words. Checking facts rather than indulging in fantasy.

Cute As A Button Knox Matching Caps With Dad Brad

Both wearing matching newsboy caps, "cute as a button" Cancerian Knox Leon Jolie-Pitt arrived in Narita Japan in the arms of his Sagittarius Dad, Brad Pitt. The Pitt-Jolie brood have arrived with their parents for the Japanese premiere of their Dad's film Benjamin Button, although they surely will be with nannies on the night of the opening and not be on the red carpet.
Sun Sign Cancer children enjoy home, and since home is where the heart is, it's good that the six month old is close to his Dad's heart! as Knox and his siblings have a double Sag Dad (Sun and rising in the sign of Sagittarius) Dad that by nature is kinda a traveling man, and a humanitarian globetrotter with six kids.
(Credits: Kimura/ Getty)

Brad Bradley Pitt is a double Sagittarius. With Sun and rising sign (how one appears to the world, one's persona ) in Sagittarius he has his share of a need to travel and share adventure and yet with all his Capricorn planets, which include a Mars in Capricorn which is exalted (best place for Mars, think of a locomotive that never runs out of steam , always stays on track until the goal is reached, the job is done or the city is reached). Because his Mars is in the first house, this colors the Sagittarius Ocean's Eleven persona, get on my motorcycle and speed away he can sometimes project .

Pitt's Capricorn stellium of planets reveal that he has an impressive amount of seriousness, emotional reserve , detachment and aloofness. Luckily for his kids, and most particularly his very emotional twin son, who was born with impressive water (emotional) energy with a Sun in the sign of Cancer and Moon in Scorpio Pitt is a nurturing, domestic, family oriented , supportive guy. This father son dynamic will be an interesting one to observe over the years as they are polar opposites and will teach the other about the strengths they both possess in spades.

Hello Kitty Jolie-Pitt Kiddies Do Japan

Born July 12th in Nice, the Jolie-Pitt twins Knox and Vivienne appeared in the arms of their parents for their first public appearance since their 14 million dollar photo shoot. (earlier post: Going For The Gold) They appeared in the arrival area at Narita International airport in Narita, Japan, strapped to their parents chests. Brad had Knox and Angelina carried Vivienne. The best picture can be seen at The rest of Team Jolie-Pitt, was also in tow. Jolie notes:

"Our kids are always packing,” “They like to pack; it’s a game in our house"

Most kids play capture the flag, these cosmopolitan travelers could fly the flags of many countries, and perhaps one of them will begin collecting them.
The sign of Sagittarius is often associated with love of the case of the Jolie-Pitt brood, the family is often traveling in conjunction with their parents work (Pitt is in Japan not to buy Hello Kitty luggage but to promote his film Benjamin Button.) Pitt's Sun is in the sign of Sagittarius.

Addie and Her Daddy: Sag Awards The Baldwins

Aries Dad Alec Baldwin brought his Libra or Scorpio daughter Ireland to the Sag Awards on Sunday to pick up two awards. 'Looking stunning" notes Babyrazzi of his daughter Ireland Eliesse known as Addie. Baldwin's Jupiter is in Libra at 28 degrees conjunct his daughter's North Node in Libra and brings her a lot of luck and she perhaps brings him that Libra poise and balance their Libra connection shows.

Depending on what time Ireland's was born she has a Sun and Moon in Libra or a Sun in Scorpio and a Moon in Scorpio or a Sun in Libra and Moon in Scorpio. Her North Node in Libra at 26 degrees is conjunct her Sun. (The Sun often is symbolic of a Dad in a child's chart wheel) The North Node indicates destiny in a chart wheel and it looks like Addie after many years of not being around her Dad so much because of her parents divorce turmoil, is finding time to relax and bask in the critical success of Thirty Rock, her father's hit show.
The above AP photo shows the teen's hair color matching her Dad's. The normally fair haired beauty usually looks very much like her mother, Sagittarian Kim Bassinger. This new look makes a case for her Sun and Moon being in the sign of Scorpio. In an earlier post, the photo we posted with her Dad Ireland looked very Libra and so Mlle Kiddie posted a Sun and Moon in Libra chart wheel.
Mlle Kiddie has calculated two possible sun on the ascendant combinations for research purposes only, they are guesstimates, without the time of birth. Anyone who knows Ireland personally would know whether she has a Sun in Scorpio (private, intense, charismatic) or a Sun in Libra (balance, poise, charm). With Jupiter in Libra, conjunct the sun and her North Node, whether it's in Scorpio or Libra, she will always appear fairly Libran. And there is always the possibility with her beauty that she also has a Libra rising (which could only be ascertained with the precise time of her birth) However as the first chart wheel reveals, if she was born late in the evening, her Moon is in Scorpio as well.
Ireland's Venus is in Libra so she loves in a balanced way and perhaps has honed this love energy dealing with two estranged parents.
The easiest way to solve "cusp" issues is to calculate a free chart wheel and mini-report from Kiddiegram.If you have precise data for your kids or yourself you can easily determine what "sign" your sun and moon are in regardless of the fact that these luminaries may change signs on the birthday date in question.

It's In The Bag: Hermes Will Go To NY

Gossip Girl's Scorpio star Kelly Rutherford received permission from the LA courts this weekend to take son Hermes to NY while filming for the the next two months. Her estranged husband, German entrepreneur Daniel Giersch will take care of his son while Rutherford is on set. The judge stated that he had to consider "the plan least likely to cause (Hermes) trauma." The couple are expecting a child in June. The star filed for divorce on December 30th citing irreconcilable differences which has upped the custody rights court action.

Little Libran Hermés Gustaf Daniel Giersch's partial star chart (time of birth unknown) indicates that his Moon in Virgo (conjunct his south node) and his sun is conjunct Mars in Libra. Children with Mars conjunct the Sun are energetic and enjoy challenges. They like being first. Librans lenjoy getting their way and yet are always able, like many good judges, able to see both sides of an issue. It looks like Hermes, has managed to win one of the first challenges of his life and is not going to be parted from either his Mom or his Dad.
Since Hermes was known as the messenger of the gods before his name became associated with a high fashion bag we expect that the divorce will be finalized and custody rights "in the bag" before his sister is born. Perhaps she
will be called Kelly after this 1970
vintage Hermés .

Where's That Moon? Dakota Fanning's New Moon

Fourteen year old Hannah Dakota Fanning is said to have been offered a role as Jane the Volturi vampire in the 'Twilight" sequel "New Moon". The Pisces actress has either a Moon in Cancer or a Moon in Leo, depending upon what time of day she was born on February 23, 1994 in Conyers, Georgia. Mlle Kiddie suspects she has a Moon in Leo as her family realized she had talent when as her IMBD mini biography notes

Dakota did her own acting around her house. She was very active for her age, and often put a blanket under her shirt and pretended to be having a baby, using her younger sister, who is also an actress now, Elle, as the baby. Dakota went to a playhouse near her home, where the children that attended put on a play every week to show to their parents. But the people running the playhouse noticed that Dakota stood out, and advised her parents, Joy and Steve Fanning, to take her to an agency. They believed that she was extremely talented

Her first job when she and her family, following the agency's recommendation that they try Los Angeles for six weeks, was a national Tide commercial. From that moment the tide turned and the family stayed on permanently in LA and Fanning began her meteoric rise to success. Her Pluto in Scorpio is conjunct her North Node of Destiny and Jupiter which is also in Scorpio. Scorpio is a very powerful sign . The Volturi , in Stephanie Meyers popular young adult "Twilight" series are the most powerful coven among vampires and enforce the laws of the vampire world, and extend invitations to those with special gifts to join their group. If Dakota
chooses to accept the role if offered, she will bring intensity and talent to the role. A reader from the age of two, perhaps she's even an avid follower of the series.
Can you single out your child's special gift? North Nodes by sign and by house placement can give vital information about those areas of life experience a child will instinctively be drawn to in order to fulfill their life purposes, as well as qualities they need to develop and express in order to do so.

Sagittarian Teen Rocks Capitol: Kid's Inaugural Ball

Tween sisters Malia and Sasha Obama are said to have a say in the lineup for the Kid's Inaugural concert-an event honoring military families and only shown on the Disney Channel which included Disney stars Miley Cyrus and the Jonas Brothers. The sisters had a chance to star gaze after that concert on Monday night with their Mom Michelle who spoke at the event said to be attended by some 14,000. We wrote about the star charts of the Obama girls in an earlier post American Girls. Malia is a Sun in Cancer(impressionable and unpredictable) trine her Moon in Scorpio (emotional depth) and Sasha is a an outgoing Gemini (outgoing and positive and open ) although she seems a little Sagittarius at times as her Sun is conjunct Jupiter.(easy-going and popular).

And what about the teen that just turned sixteen and who E!online says "Rocked the Capitol?"

The Obama girls are fond of the Hannah Montana show so Sagittarius Miley Cyrus was one of their favorites. In fact the night of the grownup inauguration balls they were at their new home in the White House watching Bolt, which stars Miley as the voice of Penny. So it was a Miley Cyrus couple of days for the tweens as they met their favorites behind the scenes, in fact the Jonas Brothers arrived as a surprise at the end of a treasure hunt at the White House Tuesday night. Joe Jonas is a Leo ( August 15,1989 Casa Grande, AZ ) Nick is a Virgo (September 16,1992 Dallas, Texas) and Kevin is a Scorpio (November 5,1987 Teaneck, New Jersey) More on the Jo Bros later. Kudos for the White House staff for making a very special welcome to these first daughters their first night (White) Home Alone!

Aquarius The Water Engineer with a Leo Sun

The riveting novel Pompeii, recounts the story of Marcus Attilius, the "aquarius" or water engineer newly assigned to care for the immense aqueduct systems at Pompeii.

The Zodiac signs are early brand names, and Aquarius, although technically an air sign, is shown with the glyph of water flowing. Here is a modern version of the glyph on the just introduced, Aquarius Flip Camera which has on it a super-cute graphic of this very individual sign. Kiddiegram Flip Phones are branded with's twelve zodiac signs. Kiddie Star Signs uses these designs for our Star Signs for Celebrity Kids chart wheels and reports.

Although no one can choose their sign, parents can choose a child's name. The name of a celebrity child evokes much interest. 2008 saw Bronx and Zuma, Sunday and Harlow.

Each name "evokes" a feeling, makes a statement, sometimes private. Names like fashions change, we don't see many Marcus Attilius's anymore but forty seven years ago Barack Hussein Obama was not yet a household name.

Today he is known throughout the world as the forty fourth President of the United States. So let's praise those parents who named their son the name they felt would grace his life on this day in history, January 20, 2009. Barack, seems to be the perfect choice to engineer the waterworks of our country with his Aquarius rising!

Name Wire has a great article entitled: 2008 Celebrity Baby Names Find Inspiration From Popular Product Brand Names

Elvis's Greats- Twin Grandaughter's Finley & Harper

Aquarian Lisa Marie Presley, who was called "Injun, Yisa and Buttonhead" by her father, is shown here with her three month old daughters. (picture from Finley and Harper her Libra twins were born on October 7, 2008 in Thousand Oaks, California. This is a guestimate chart wheel for them just to show the planetary aspects and signs the planets are in, it does not reveal the house positions. We do not have the time of their birth. People Magazine has the photo exclusive.

Mademoiselle of Kiddiegram can note this however about their chart wheel aspects. The twin's Mercury, planet of communication is conjunct their Sun:

Mercury Conjunct Sun
Finley and Harper enjoy and need to communicate, and they are apt to be avid talkers from an early age. Expect a continual stream of questions, comments, and conversation on every topic. You may need to encourage them to listen more, as theytends to be the more active, vocal participant in a discussion. The twins appreciates a lively, mentally stimulating environment with plenty to do and think about. Puzzles, word games, and books may be their favorite play things.

Jupiter trine Saturn
As children Finley and Harper are apt to have an unusual degree of maturity, composure, poise, and conscientiousness, which makes them something of a favorite amongst their elders. One of the ways in which they seek to grow is through learning and carrying on a tradition. Useful skills passed on by a parent or grandparent will be highly valued and carried forward by the twins.

It wouldn't be surprising that these girls would carry on the musical traditions of their Mom and grandfather.

The Fire Triplicity Surrounding Seraphina Affleck!

Leo Ben Affleck and his Aries wife Jennifer Garner shared the name of their new daughter yesterday through Garner's rep. The baby, born on January 6th in Los Angeles, was named Seraphina Rose. The "Seraphim" are the "fiery angels" but Violet Affleck's sister is a double earth child, with Sun and Moon in the earth element. She'll be a very grounded and practical youngester, and will be, as all Moon in Taurus children are...very loving.

Her "fiery angels" will be her fire element parents, Ben with his Sun in Leo and Jennifer with her sun in Aries and her fire-sign sister, Violet who has a Sun in the fire-sign Sagittarius. She essentially will have the fire triplicity in her life pumping enthusiasm (Sag) , generosity(Leo) and leadership (Aries) into her life...the Old Testament angel energy of the Seraphim will help this child to learn to soar and quite literally "wing it" through life! (this image taken from which shows a picture from a fourteenth century manuscript which depicts the Seraphim surrounding the divine throne in an illustration from the Petites Heures de Jean de Berry,

Birthday Boy Ryder's Mom Gives Party Makes Awards

Friday evening, Aries Mom, Kate Hudson was late for the People's Choice Awards (AP Photo/Chris Pizzello) because she was stuck in traffic after a post school birthday party for her five year old son Ryder. Ellen DeGeneres took her place to give out the evening's first award saying Hudson was stuck in traffic...later when apologizing for her tardiness Hudson noted" I'm one tired Mom" and she wished her son a happy birthday when accepting the "Favorite Leading Lady" Award .

Ryder is a very grounded little guy, with an Earth sign Sun (Capricorn). It's great that his Fire Sign (Aries) Mom is able to balance his birthday needs with her career.

To see how Kate -a Fire-Sign Parent best relates to her Earth Sign birthday boy click on the Kiddiegram Parent-Interactive Site. This link will work if you are a Fire sign Parent (Aries, Sagittarius and Leo) and have an Earth sign child (Capricorn, Virgo or Taurus).

" Another potential problem here is that the parent is likely to outshine or at least draw more attention to him or herself than the child does, which can make the child feel rather dull in comparison to the parent"

Luckily for these two, Ryder has enough fire energy (a Mercury in Sagittarius conjunct Pluto which makes it very powerful) to shine
as much as his Mom.

What a Tripp! Palin is now a Grandmother

Aquarian Governor Sara Palin's Libra daughter Bristol and her high school sweetheart Levi Johnston now have a son Tripp, born December 27th at 5:30 am in Palmer, Alaska.

The Capricorn child's full name is Tripp Easton Mitchell Johnston. The name Tripp means "traveller". With a stellium of planets in Capricorn and a very powerful second house Tripp will be a force to be reckoned with with six planets in the sign of Capricorn in the house of values and money. On the Huffington Post Lisa Derrick Pop Culture Journalist and Editor of the FireDogLake blog La Figa waxes on about his astrological chart. She points out that with his Mars conjunct his Sun and Pluto he will be a leader.

Mademoiselle Kiddie of has done this little planetary powerhouse's Kiddiegram report. His Mom Bristol was born on October 18th, she is now seventeen. Her boyfriend was 18 at the time this picture was taken at the Republican convention. We do not have a birth date for Tripp's Dad.

Negotiations for pictures of the baby are said to be going on with People and US magazines.

Mlle Kiddie did Tripp's Kiddie Star Sign Chart Wheel & his Kiddiegram Report to understand his Lunar North Node placement. His grandmother Palin has a very strong North Node position one that has been discussed at length by Elizabeth Spring on her fascinating blog, North Node Astrology.

Introduction to the Lunar Nodes
The Lunar Nodes are points formed by the moon's orbit around the Earth intersecting with the Earth's path around the Sun. These sensitive "power points" in our child's chart give vital information about those areas of life experience that he will instinctively be drawn to in order to fulfill his life purposes, as well as qualities he needs to develop and express in order to do so. They show where he can be most successful as he unfolds his natural talent.
North Node in Aquarius
The qualities Tripp needs in order to succeed in this endeavor are experimentation and the willingness to be different or perhaps unconventional.
North Node in the Third House
Tripp's life path involves gathering, sharing, and exchanging information and knowledge with others. He may evolve onto a wonderful teacher and communicator because he loves to learn and then to teach others. Even at a young age he may surprise his elders with his wisdom if he is allowed and encouraged to freely speak his mind. He enjoys making friendly connections to anyone in his immediate surroundings, from the postman to the folks next door. Youthful entrepreneurial ventures such as selling lemonade, doing errands, or having a newspaper route allow him to exchange information or connect with the people around him.

To find out your child's life path, create a Kiddiegram Report and find out what sign and what house the North Node of the moon is in.
